Is Your Screen Time Influencing Your Style?

Is Your Screen Time Influencing Your Style?

Ever since Audrey Hepburn wore that little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, there as been no question over the relationship between films and fashion. Top movies have as much of a direct hit on clothing trends as past and present fashion influences and promotes films.

So which films are having an impact on what we wear right now and how do we echo that style?

The Netflix hit The Gentleman has led to a surge of interest in ‘old money’ style. An aristocratic family become embroiled in the shady world of organised crime, whilst sporting quintessentially British country clothing. They wear tweed, cord and checks yet always with a twist. We would describe the fashion as very British, classic but modern with a good dose of quirkiness.

Eddie Horniman, the new Duke of Halstead, likes a relaxed look but is always presentable. He would be happy in the Teller Cardigan by Selected Homme - sporty, modern, casual and yet refined.  

His older brother Freddy is a more likely to wear a Schoffel Baconsthorpe Checked shirt, but he would pair his with a Bown Men’s Dressing Gown and a tweed cap worn back to front! A crazy but sartorial style!

Lady Sabrina, the mother, appears throughout the series in everything one would imagine a lady of her stature to wear. She nails the wealthy country lady look in fitted tweed jackets, crips white shirts, a smart fedora and finished with a silk scarf.

The Schoffel Ptarmigan Tweed Coat would be appropriate with a pair of Cashmere Leather lined Gloves in winter.

Underneath Lady Sabrina might wear a Rino & Pelle V Neck jumper or a Vilagallo Embroidered Flower Blouse – a likely choice as it is a white shirt but with an unequivocal interesting twist.

Lady Sabrina would certainly wear a Storiatipic Astrid scarf around her neck, topped off with a jaunty Hicks and Brown Fedora. Pop on a pair of Le Chameau wellies and you’ve got the look!  



 Next up is much talked about Saltburn. Set in 2006 and 2007 it tells a dark, psychological story of a privileged family and is set between Oxford University and their impressive country house.

The main character Felix opts for a collegiate look – preppy rugby shirts, cricket jumpers and polo shirts. Black and Blue’s Heritage Rugby Shirts in vintage colour dyes with a distressed wash have an immediate ‘worn-in, much loved’ feel from the go get.

In the summer months, he cuts a dash in a dishevelled linen shirt. To recreate this vibe and look equally effortless, choose a Rodd and Gunn Linen Shirt. Just make sure you roll up the sleeves and keep possibly one too many buttons undone for a true Felix look.

Elspeth, Felix’s mother, is clearly interested in fashion and nails the noughties look of Sienna Miller and the likes. She’s partial to a gilet. Whilst hers were overtly boho, ours are more versatile. Rino & Pelle’s cosy knitted design is perfect transitional piece – pop it over your patterned shirt or floaty dress for a nod to Elspeth’s style.

Elspeth would be just as happy in a Traffic People dress or wafting around the garden with a Part Two Seersucker Ena Dress, probably with bare feet.

Her daughter Venetia is the wild child of the family. Fond of a sparkle, sequins feature highly in her wardrobe both for day and nighttime. Not everyone wants to rock this vibe, but a Les Belles Vagabondes Silk Twilly scarf would around the neck or tied in the hair would fit the fashion aesthetic.

We could certainly see Venetia in a pair of Vilagallo’s Graphic Print Venus wide legged trousers. The gorgeous colour combination is guaranteed to make statement, but we would style them with a knit right now and a tee in the summer instead of a twinkly bikini top!

Pair with statement sunglasses from A Kjaerbede, especially this 70’s inspired pilot frame with coloured lenses.

To conclude, your screen time maybe having more of an influence on your style than you think.
